I've forgotten the first set because it's set list was dull.
The 2nd set was THE SHIT, A bouncy Scarlet>Fire filled with Feedback and Dan Healey's effects. Enter a Playing> China Doll pairing with Junky Jerry killing the solos. Drums> Space played to the deep acoustics of Richmond Coloseum. Jerry's amp failed early in Space and the Jazzy improvs were provided by Phil, Bent and Bobby and are the closest you'll hear them get to Pink Floyd (Listen the guy in the crowd shout out ECSTATICALLY). Jerry returns just before they roll into Throwing Stones and croaks his flemy voice as they kill Goin down the road... Listen closely as dan Healy provides some very trippy effects to the final songs (Only surpassed by the MAGIC he flipped at 10.14.84 in Hartford, Ct. HOLLY SHIT!).
also, the night before at charlotte produced the best browneyed women and duprees. A challenge to anyone who can find abetter. This is from a person who thinks the dead lost it all after pigpen.. 84-86 was special.
Subject: First set A+
Scarlet>Fire never gives up and 18 mins up there with one of the longest ever. Playin sounds like its about to go into Viola Lee Blues instead of China Doll which would have made this an epic show.
Subject: My first show - 21 years ago!
I got my CDRs from the taper, I believe...I'll have to dig up his info. However, I have the info sheet in front of me...
The lineage is Sennheiser 421 mics > Sony D5 > DAT > CDR on my copy, which is tracked identically to this version. Tracks 1, 2, 3, and 6 of disc 1 are listed as coming from an alternate Nak CM300 source, which I assume is the other circulating version of this show.

Subject: phenom scarlet>fire-
The scarlet intro is lucid and the keys by Brent are sick throughout the second set. First set is basic but also solid versions of each tune and LL Rain is very well sung. This show is a 5 star show all around. This show, should be in dead lore as having the hottest scarlet>fire of 1984 and possibly and arguably so, in the top 10 ever, somewhere behind, in order: 5.8.77, 2.28.81, 4.13.83,and 8.8.82. All here in the archive; see for yourself.
This show is a fine listen and the first Scarlet>fire since 6.21 of this year. The previous playings of scarlet and fire in the same show had "scarlet" transitioned with "Touch" and into fire.
Great show! Jerrys is soooo hardcore during the scarlet fire transition that this show may- I say MAY- get my vote for best scarlet fire post 70's!Maybe even best scarlet>fire ever..?? what?...yes that is right, possibly the best scarlet fire ever!!!!!
